Jacqueline Unanue

Jacqueline Unanue is a Chilean-American artist of Spanish ancestry living and working in art in Philadelphia since 2000. She studied design at the Universidad de Chile, Valparaíso, and received formal training in drawing, painting, art history and textile art. While a student, she became interested in the rock art found in Chile where she met world-renowned archaeologist, Hans Niemeyer, who soon became her mentor. She traveled extensively through Chile’s Atacama Desert doing onsite rock art research. In Spain, she studied the pre-historic paintings of the Altamira caves in the Basque Country, the home of her paternal ancestors.
In 2015, she received the Latin American Women in Art and Cultural Tribute recognition in New York. Unanue’s work has been shown in both solo and group exhibitions around the world, specifically Spain, Finland, Ecuador, Argentina, and the United States. Her work resides in many private and public collections in the Americas and Europe. She lives in Philadelphia with her husband Ricardo Guajardo Romero (also an artist and designer). Currently she is represented by Muse Gallery, Philadelphia.
